Woo hoo!

So, I am happy to tell you that the contest that I put my life (and my family's life) on hold for during May is over and today they announced the winner...

I won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (See here if you are interested.)

I have really enjoyed digital scrapbooking, as I am sure you are aware, since I reguarly insist on boring you with my layouts.

But I actaully really LOVE it. It is a creative outlet for me that is so exciting, and I really feel like I have something that is just mine.

There are so many parts of my life that belong to other people...and I wouldn't change my life for anything. But I am so excited to have something that I am really passionate about and that brings me some external validation.

...again, I wouldn't change my life, but if I am being honest I will tell you that there aren't very many thank yous or much appreciate for being a mom. That isn't why I do it, but having had a "job" for so many years, there is something to be said for paychecks, raises, and performance reviews.

And now with my scrapbooking, I get to share what I love and recieve feedback from others who also love it. It is such a great feeling.

So, the prize I won?

Well, it was supposed to be a one month guest spot of the creative team of the scrapbook site whose contest I won. But, they have actually offered me a full time spot on their team.

This basically means I get to scrapbook to my hearts content with all the digital scrapbooking products they have available....basically a scrapaholic's dream come true!

Jealousy ensues!! You are my hero! I looked at all 113 layouts. They are incredible! You really do have a gift. Congrats to you!

What program do you use to scrap?

Denise said...

Photoshop Elements. It is a good, basic program.

WOW Denise. Winner of 31 entries. Awesome. And too bad you still had time to check out my blog at a very BAD time. HEHEHE. I am so impressed.

Congrats Denise. Well played.

Hilary said...

YAY!!!!
Really, I love your pages.
You are a genius.
I bow to you. :)
I have a few digi pages to make... perhaps you can give me some tips. Although, usually when I choose digi, it's because I have about 12 million pictures to go on it. :)
